Tom Turcich here. April 2nd, 2015 I left my home in New Jersey to embark on a five year trek across the seven continents. The dream of walking around the world formed at seventeen after my friend AnneMarie passed. Since her death I've decided to make the most of each day. I walk the world to become immersed in unknown places and be forced into adventure day after day. In Texas I adopted a dog, Savannah, and we've crossed every border together ever since. I write and take photos, and am hopefully getting better at both with each passing day.

Out to my right was open ocean while in front of me the road appeared to slide along the hills as a black river.  How long had I been walking for?  At times it felt like forever, other times it felt like just a few days. I could no longer hold on to time.  Days […]
